A survey of 100WebSpace

We, at zombieslash.com, have picked '100WebSpace' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we presume that this short evaluation of '100WebSpace' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that '100WebSpace' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at zombieslash.com, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting packages supplied by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by '100WebSpace' are driven by a custom developed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a different host of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel website hosting suppliers are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web hosting solution. With a shared hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the web space hosting price very low (since many clients are hosted on the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web site hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your site grows. Hence, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting plan supplied by '100WebSpace' contains an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. '100WebSpace' distributes shared web space hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided '100WebSpace' are really well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to handling a typical shared web page hosting package through a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times greater than that of a shared package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared packages. When compared with a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not come with full root access (we, at zombieslash.com, think of this as a slight downside), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same CP GUI as the shared site hosting plans. This hints that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not confident enough to administer a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $55.00 for the Standard plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In zombieslash.com's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from '100WebSpace' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' demands, '100WebSpace' delivers a number of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of site. According to '100WebSpace', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from zombieslash.com, deem that all dedicated server accounts offered by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at zombieslash.com, regard this as a tiny minus, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (zombieslash.com's) prediction is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (zombieslash.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by '100WebSpace' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
